Great location bordering on scenic undulating arid farmland. Large spacious site. A very quite and calm place. About four years old, fresh and modern, tastefully presented. Lovely immaculate gardens, especially the courtyard type herb garden.
Guest’s seemed mainly professional people. Some had infants. Apparently about one hundred and fifty guests were on the site but during our week there were usually only about ten people at the pool and twenty at breakfast. We paid about £470 for b&b for two in one of the twenty two hotel rooms. These rooms are designed around a style of courtyard and were bottom of the complex’s price range; but fine and good value for money. The apartments looked very nice as we walked by them and would go for one of those if we ever returned.
One problem. There is piped external music in the hotel area and when it was playing it was always audible in our room. For some this slight background Muzack may be fine but for me, late afternoon, when trying to read in a quiet room for an hour or so before going out, it was irritating. Twice I mentioned it to reception but it made no difference. I would not take a hotel room again for this reason alone.
Issues that wouldn’t stop us going again: We never had our bed linen changed. Our room was usually not made up till late afternoon. We may have taken an evening meal in the dining room but we never ever saw a menu. Not at breakfast, in the room or in the reception area. When checking in I asked about an upgrade to an apartment. There was no negotiation on the price so we declined. One day I asked the reception if they had any paracetamol. They found only one tablet but they did find me a 24-hour pharmacy. The service of providing daily newspapers was offered. Seems we were the only ones taking this service. Someone had to go out to collect them and they only did this when doing other duties so papers were not available until about 11.30am. No scales for weighing bags. As most people fly in and out it would seem a handy service to offer. One guest told me the complex is now owned by Barclays Bank.
